Asterion DC

Sorensen Asterion DC Series

1.7 / 3.4 / 5 kW High Performance Programmable DC Power Supply


Like the Asterion AC family, the Sorensen Asterion DC Series sets a new standard for power density. All units are just 1U (44.45mm/1.75in) high, so rack space requirements are minimal. Asterion DC Series supplies offer rated output voltages in 40 V and 60 V for 1.7 kW, 3.4 kW and 5.0 kW power levels. The new DC series features two types of product lines: fixed range and autoranging. The fixed range supplies are economical, traditional rectangular wave output power supplies with all the enhanced operation advantages standard with the Asterion platform. The autoranging supplies feature expanded current and voltage range at the full output power level, enabling the ability to satisfy a wider testing need without requiring the purchase of additional models.
The intuitive front panel touchscreen interface and multilanguage display ensure exceptional ease of use. An auto-paralleling capability supports operating multiple units in parallel to increase the total output power level.

• High power density in 1U chassis 1.7 / 3.4 / 5.0 kW
• DC output 40 / 60 V
• Fixed or autoranging models
• Active power factor correction
• Multi-language for global operation
• Auto paralleling for higher power
• Standard LAN, USB, RS232 Interfaces (GPIB optional)
• Full remote control via Virtual Panels

Sorensen Asterion DC Power Supply

Autoranging Model Output Characteristic The Asterion DC autoranging models have an output characteristic where the full rated output power is available at voltage and current ranges greater than the conventional rectangular output characteristic of fixed range power supplies. The output current versus output voltage follows a constant-power curve to provide users a wider current and voltage operating range in a single power supply.

 

Asterion DC Virtual Panels (Graphical User Interface)
Asterion DC Virtual Panels are graphical user interfaces that allow programming, monitoring and controlling any of the supplies remotely. All operations that can be performed by working directly with the unit’s front panel controls can be performed remotely with these Virtual Panels
